The scene on this plate is copied from a design by Abraham Bloemaert (1564–1651) included in his drawing book and first engraved by his son Cornelis II (ca. 1603–ca. 1680). The scene as shown on this and other examples is, however, taken from a reverse copy, perhaps that published by the unidentified Casp.
